Description:

Visit: One World Observatory, 285 Fulton Street One World Trade Center, New York City, NY 10007-0089

When you arrive at One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, hop in a Sky Pod (aka elevator) and arrive on the 102nd floor in less than 60 seconds. The Sky Pod provides a virtual time-lapse experience so you can see how New York City has changed over the centuries.
If you thought the elevator ride was cool, you'll be blown away by the One World Observatory's vantage point, which on a clear day, provides a sight line of about 50 miles (80 kilometers). Watch a video about the making of the 1,776-foot-tall (540-meter) skyscraper, and then look out the panoramic windows for one-of-a-kind New York City views. Upgrade your experience to a priority combo ticket to skip all the lines with Priority Access security line and Express elevator to the top, Priority exit from the Observatory and access to the One World Explorer - the virtual guide iPad. Need more flexibility? Upgrade to the All-Inclusive Flex Admission to arrive anytime on your selected travel date, receive all the upgrades of a Priority Combo ticket plus enjoy a beverage at the top!
At the See Forever Theater, see time-lapse photos and aerial imagery during a unique 2-minute video presentation, and then check out the the Main Observatory on the 100th floor, where you can step onto a 14-foot-wide (4-meter) disc in the floor and look down for an incredible perspective of real-time, high-definition footage of Manhattan's streets. And don't leave without stopping by City Pulse, an interactive experience that connects visitors with New York's landmarks and neighborhoods.
When you're hungry, you can head to the 101st floor for a bite to eat (own expense). Options include pastries and fresh sandwiches at One Café, small plates and artisanal cocktails at the bar, One Mix, and high-end food and wine that matches the stunning view at One Dine (reservations required at One Dine).

this was really worth while doing, the views are amazing and a pre-booked ticket saved so much time, we did this 2 hours after the museum and timing worked well

It was worth the money. Due to delay in my flight by Delta, was unable to go on scheduled date. We were able to change date, without and difficulty. The views are great.

The view from the tour is spectacular. We didn't have to wait in line which was great. The only negative
was the renting of VR equipment which I felt wasn't worth the money.

Our skip the line ticket did not enable to skip any line. As we had paid extra for this we were extremely disappointed. Excuse given was that we didn’t pay to skip all the lines. However we didn’t skip anything. The views were amazing. Well worth visiting.

The One World Observatory experience was great but the extra fee to "skip the line" wasn't worth the money. The staff shuffling the crowd didn't seem to care that we had the skip the line ticket and herded my family to the regular line even though we mentioned several times to various staff member about "skip the line access." While going through the regular maze, it seemed odd that we were still in a line to get to the elevators.

Not sure what the other observation decks are like in NYC so I have no comparison, but we were way UNDER
whelmed. Long lines (even with timed entry. The woman taking the tickets yelled at everyone who had gathered for entry at the time for the next tour, threatening to call security. What a disorganized cluster. I would definitely not do it again nor recommend it. Too costly for the experience...save your $$.

This ONLY gets you through the line to purchase a ticket, nothing else and believe me, you have a line for security, you have a line for the elevator, you have a line for the video, you have a line for up sell of an IPAD, all these lines before you get to see the view. Not worth buying these tickets and they really should not even be on Viator as an option, very disappointed.
